Nathan and Lianne Straathof are an entrepreneurial couple with a passion for people, hard work and great food. The couple has a track record of tackling challenges and a love for adventure, having each completed an Ironman Triathlon and multiple marathons, working and living abroad in Munich Germany for three years, and building successful e-commerce businesses for products they have developed. The endless outdoor activities, social opportunities, warm weather and urban culture in Austin had Nathan and Lianne quickly falling in love with the city, agreeing they would choose no other place to live. The couple has always been deeply passionate about serving others and getting to know their community and believe the restaurant business is the best way to do just that in Austin.
After developing a love for the food and hospitality of Another Broken Egg Cafe, Nathan and Lianne knew they wanted to share this experience with the local community in Austin. They are excited to bring this restaurant serving quality, southern-inspired breakfast, brunch, and lunch into the area.
Nathan and Lianne are active participants of Back On My Feet, a non-profit organization combating homelessness through the power of running, community support and employment resources. The couple also volunteers bi-weekly with the Clean Trail Club, a homegrown group dedicated to picking up litter from the trails and lakes in the Austin Area. In their spare time, the couple is actively involved in and supports the local running community. While Nate works to manage daily operations at Another Broken Egg Cafe, Lianne works in Product Development for Whole Foods Market Global HQ in Austin. Nathan and Lianne are excited to become increasingly active members of the Austin community through their franchise ownership of Another Broken Egg Cafe which has brought great excitement and adventure into their lives!
